I think he’s wonderful, I have a great relationship with him, I talk to him frequently,” she said. “I’m so thankful for him and his family, as we all are, and I defend him all the time. I swear I would fight for that man because he fought for us and that’s the kind of president we need back, and if he were to ask me of course, I would be honored.”

Although Trump has yet to formally or officially announce that he plans on making another bid for the White House in 2024, many believe that to be the case in spite of his silence on the matter. The former president has also heavily implied and suggested that he has plans to run again in the not-so-distant future. Individuals from both sides of the political aisle have expressed their beliefs that he will choose to run for president again, which has been met with both praise and criticism, and unsurprisingly so given just how divisive the topic of Trump’s presidency was.
Greene has also been a long-standing, incredibly vocal supporter of Trump who has stood behind him in innumerous circumstances. Just as she mentioned, Greene has gone to bat for the former president many times over, defending him against claims she believes to be false and sometimes defaming.
While nothing has been set in stone in regard to Trump running for president once more in 2024, nonetheless that he’ll think to consider Greene as a potential running mate, speculation is unavoidable, and thus far, Greene has become a likely candidate for the job in the eyes of the public.
